Areas of Interest

Design for Manufacturability, Characterization of Manufacturing Variation, CAD for Low Power and Computer Architecture

Biographical Sketch

Swamy Muddu received his Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Communication Engg from Osmania University, Hyderabad in 2001. He received his M.S. degree in Computer Engg. from UCSD in 2003 and is currently a candidate for Ph.D.


Swamy's current research is on characterization and modeling of IC manufacturing variation. He is interested in technology aspects of IC physical design, electronic design process and technology roadmapping. He contributed to the 2003 International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors

Though unconnected with VLSI and CAD, he maintains interest in renewable energy sources, clean energy and next-generation propulsion systems.
